CNC Interface, Workholding System Integrate Automation
VersaBuilt, with Universal Robots, showcases the CNC Communication URCap interface and MultiGrip workholding system for collaborative robot integration.
The MultiGrip workholding system includes an automatic vise, machinable jaws and an end-of-arm tool for the UR robot. The system enables the robot and the CNC to share a set of MultiGrip machinable jaws for in feed, out feed and CNC machining, resulting in reduced engineering costs, easier robot programming, faster setup time, and enhanced processing capabilities.
Correct alignment lock selection will reduce maintenance costs, molding downtime and increase part quality over the mold’s entire life.
Both copper and graphite provide approximately the same end result, so it is important for a shop to consider the advantages and disadvantages of each material in order to discover what would work best in their shopfloor environment.
